    Let's say I've got a Forsaken Rogue called Dave. Dave undergoes some barber shop gender reassignment..




    Lady Dave is still called Dave.


    I can't see where I change the name? Any ideas?
    Cannot change the name in-game unless through one of the paid processes in the in-game shop.

    Also, you could already technically change your gender in World of Warcraft since WoD since it's a 5-minute buff on a 2-minute cooldown potion. Of course, you'll have to buy it in bulk...

    Dave obviously is still doing his 1 year living as a woman thing before the barber makes the final cuts.

    Name changes, as far as I know (haven't used one, only going by second-hand information here), remove you from other people's friend lists, and I think out of their ignore lists as well.

    Plus, with transmogrification in the game you can already look different from day to day, and that's not counting all the cosmetic toys. Your name is the one identifier people have in the game.

    That's why you give your character gender neutral names or outlandish names. So if you change genders at the barber shop you don't have to shell out money for a name change.

    I'm waiting for the free race change myself. Since you know, they keep changing animations every expac. Still foaming mad about how they made Orc Female 2h trash back in WoD or Legion or whatever with the new models.
    Content drought is a combination of catchup mechanics and no new content.

    What did they even change? Orc female always had a pretty bad 2H animation - I know because it was my main in Vanilla and I hated using a 2H because it looked dumb.

    "... some wow experts being interviewed..."

    Love all these folks upset that their traditional names no longer match the sex of the characters in a fantasy game where there is no precedent.

    Also many names just have meaning to them and we only assign them genders because of tradition.

    Sofia means wisdom, but not used as a boy name.

    Jacob means "grasps at the heel" and is also the root of the name James, but they aren't used as names for girls.

    Oh, here's a great one, Sasha. Boys names in Russia, girls name in America.

    Y'all need to just get over it.

    Eh, everyone kinda got slammed with that and it sucked. They pretty much just "normalized" all melee animations for each spec which made characters seem a bit boring.

    I think part of it had to do with PvP - so you could know what attack someone just did and why your health just got chunked - but also because they wanted unique attack animations rather than either using a generic racial one or having to animate say 24 different rampages for each race.

    Welcome to 15 years ago when you finally heard a guildy on teamspeak that you always just assumed was a lady because they only played female characters.

    That would just lead people to eating up all of the good names rather than most of them.
